You can do all of this with simple hands-on math activities that will make everyone smile. Play and learn in different ways to explore early math concepts with young kids. Repetition is one of the key elements to success, and finding unique ways to keep the same material fresh and interesting is important. Check out our simple ways to practice preschool math every day. 


10 Best Preschool Math Activities

Make our simple preschool math activities your own with materials you have on hand! Use our basic ideas but create your own themes based on your kids interests! If 1-20 counting is to hard or to easy, change the activity to fit your kids needs! This way multiple age children can also enjoy the same activity. If your kid doesn’t like cars, freeze something else in a block of ice. The possibilities surrounding these simple preschool math activities are endless. We love to change them up for the seasons or holidays too! Remember,  repetition of these early math concepts is crucial so why not use the seasons and holidays to make them extra special too.
